On the heels of a China-Solomon Islands security alliance, we approach this dialogue series with a broad but crucial question: How can Australian education providers strengthen relationships with the Pacific Islands region to engage in genuine partnership?
Presenting the first Global Development Dialogue Series for 2022 we challenge our panel of experts and audience to tackle this issue.
Our panel of experts will lead discussions with event attendees to seek solutions for the challenge of how to strengthen relationships with the Pacific through four key lenses, development impact, applied research, teaching, and engagement. The solutions must be addressing the broader themes of this dialogue of environment, climate change, governance, and public policy.
This dialogue series will require participants to self-select their topics of interest and to engage with panelists in a solution-focused approach. Following the breakout sessions, panelists will provide a synopsis of one to two key opportunities to strengthen relationships with the Pacific under the umbrella of the topic suggested, with the panel moderator seeking to identify synergies and connective solutions from these outcomes.
Attendees will be invited to post-event workshops which will seek to unpack the solutions shared to further explore how they may be enacted at UQ.
